“This gripping and insightful book will not only arrest your heart, it will become a tool to aid you or others you know who are trying to deal with loss, pain, and inconceivable suffering.”
-Jay Lowder, Harvest Ministries
Sherri J. Cullison sat next to her husband, numb with grief and denial. Beyond them rested a middle-sized casket draped with tender pink and yellow roses-fourteen-year-old Sarah’s favorite colors, which would symbolize God’s gentle signs of love, grace, and healing through the Cullison family’s years-long grief journey.
Though Sherri knew she could trust God’s goodness no matter what, her life quickly became a fragile ship charting angry, choppy waves. The unprecedented emotions of depression, anxiety, and loneliness gripped her as she encountered the inky black sea of grief no parent should ever experience.
As she navigated the storm of raging loss, Sherri sought to understand why God had taken her little girl. Over time she connected with others who also suffered emotional pain and lasting trauma, sharing how God can heal, restore, and bring hope in hopeless situations.
